The supple yet powerful and broad-shouldered flavors possess plenty of the typically young Clos de Vougeot austerity. This is impressively long even though it is not quite as dense as the best of these grands crus. Still, ample patience is advised.

The Estate is currently run by Philippe and Christine Drouhin, assisted by their children Caroline and Nicolas.
Each successive generation continued to develop the Estate with the sole objective of investing in hillside vineyards, which was a visionary and risky choice. At the time, those vineyards were already very expensive and not very productive. The bet paid off and today, thanks to the sacrifices and risk-taking of the previous generations, the 11.50 hectare Estate is one of the most prestigious in terms of diversity, quality and the surface area of its appellations.
